So looks like iOS 11 has moved back to signal bars. Which do you prefer?
Dots... But doesn't really matter
I got use to the dots. I don't like the fact that signal bars only have 4.
edit for typo. Single -> signal.
I am ok with either option. The true parameter is using the decibel reading.
Signal Bars. Is the Carrier hidden finally?
Think it's to provide more space on the status bar as there's a chunk taken out the middle on the iPhone X
Both are fine
No, the carrier is always hidden on Apple Screenshots.
Damn... Thanks man.
Bars! Dots looked weird and take up too much space. In tech support, it was rough asking "how many dots do you have?". Welcome back bars!
Bars. I always hated those dots lol
Bars but I'd prefer it with 5 instead of 4.
Dots looked awful & take up space. Also, bars seemed like a uniform standard for cell signal. Glad Apple decided to go back.
Either. I use actual decibels from Field Mode anyway.
This is by far the best feature of iOS 11. it brings back a bit of the "real phone" feeling
Wasn't it five bars back in the day? By going to four bars, it's 24pts wide on the iPhone 7, vs. 34pts wide with the dots, or 20px narrower for those who prefer real units.
Now if only we could get an option to disable the carrier at the top. "T-Mobile Wi-Fi" takes up way too much space and kicks the activity spinner to the right side of the display! It's ridiculous. I know what carrier I'm connected to. I only change carriers about every five years. All it needs is [bars][speed (GPRS/E/3G/4G/LTE)] and that's it.
I like the space savings and the more classic look, honestly. Also the fact that it's four bars instead of five dots makes more sense; I can never use cel data successfully when I have one dot anyway. That first dot may as well not exist!
I remember being annoyed when they switched from bars to dots. The dots just looked weird! I'm used to them now and they no longer annoy me, but it's nice to go back to the bars.
One thing I wish they'd do (which they haven't yet even in 11) is to get rid of the extra "Personal Hotspot: 1 Connection" status bar you get when using personal hotspot, and just put the tiny hotspot icon with the number of users next to it in the blue status bar, which is what you see before you unlock your phone.
It gets to the point where I get annoyed turning on hotspot for people because that extra status bar pushes everything else down and makes the interface wonky in some apps.
I've loved the dots since I first saw them in the WWDC Keynote announcing iOS 7. I really miss the dots.
I like the signal bars because of the hint of iOS 6, but I hate the fact that there is only 4 of them.
Bars are good, but I feel like they should be on the right side of the carrier logo instead of the left.
Why do you want the carrier hidden? It's important, especially when roaming.
I'm happy the bars are back, the dots take up too much space, and everyone still called them bars anyway "I only have 2 bars in here!"
Because they’ve switched to bars, the activity spinner is back on the left side...even in the case of “T-Mobile Wi-Fi.”
Some people live in areas where they could accidentally roam onto another network e.g. Some travel a lot and find it useful to know which network they're currently connected to.
Dots are much better, this bars looks like android and its ugly.
